One year ago, British developer Ennismore began gutting the former Los Angeles Railway building to convert it into a Hoxton Hotel.  The wrapping has now come off the historic structure at 1060 S. Broadway, allowing passersby to take in its restored facade.

The interior of the 10-story building, which was completed in 1925 at the northeast corner of 11th Street and Broadway, is being converted into 164 guest rooms with multiple food-and-beverage venues.  Plans also call for event space and a rooftop pool deck.

Design work comes from Chicago-based GREC architects, building off of the original design by Noerenberg & Johnson.

Ennismore, which purchased the building for $30 million in 2015, will make the Downtown Hoxton one of just four U.S. location for the chain - joining hotels in Portland, Brooklyn, and Chicago.

Other historic buildings currently under restoration in the surrounding area including the nearby Case Hotel - which is being revived as a Proper Hotel.  Also under construction are offices conversions of the one-time headquarters of the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner newspaper and a larger 12-story building at 1023 S. Broadway.

Ground-up projects in the near vicinity include the now-completed Broadway Palace apartments and a proposed 15-story hotel at 1138 S. Broadway.
